Electronic Stability Control (ESC)

ESC, or Electronic Stability Control, helps every driver to handle critical situations, when the car is getting into the skid. The control unit constantly compares current data about the driving behaviour of the vehicle with the preset values. If the values do not match, the control unit gives command to stabilize the vehicle. The stability program uses the abilities of ABS, ASR and few other special sensors. This allows it to prevent slipping or locking the wheels. The principle of its function is limiting the engine torque and braking the inner rear wheel in case of understeer, or outer front wheel in case of oversteer.
ESC provides significant help to the driver, but it still can’t overcome the laws of nature. The ESC can help the driver only if the limits of grip are not exceeded, at least on the wheels used to stabilize the vehicle.

Bi-xenon headlights

The SPACEBACK is the first ŠKODA car to feature an innovation in lighting technology –headlights with a low-energy bi-xenon dipped and full beam. They generate a longer and wider beam of light than halogen lamps, compared to which they have 33% higher luminous flux and up to three times longer life. Because of their low output compared to standard xenon headlamps, they need not be equipped with headlight cleaning or dynamic inclination alignment. They emit a pleasant colour similar to daylight.

Airbags and impact protection

Isofix anchoring points
Isofix anchoring points on the rear seats ensure better mounting of the seats in the vehicle and provide its better attachment to the car’s body. This is important for safety in case of a crash. Further anchoring points in the luggage compartment can be used for fixing the child seat by the TopTether system.​
6 airbags
The main purpose of airbags is to prevent, with the help of the safety belts, the occupants’ bodies from contact with any rigid parts of the car, or at least minimize the consequences of this contact.
Front airbags
The driver is protected by front airbag mounted in the steering wheel, the passenger’s front airbag is placed in the dashboard.
Head airbags
Head airbags cover the window area and car’s inner structured from A-pillar to the C-pillar. They protect the heads of occupants on both front and rear seats and thus provide the maximum safety.
Side airbags
Side airbags, placed in the front seats, protect the thorax and pelvis of both driver and passenger in case of side impact.

Antilock Brake System (ABS)

The objective of the ABS is to keep the car under control even during abrupt braking. The car with its wheels locked is uncontrollable, be it on slippery surface or dry tarmac. The ŠKODA ABS keeps the wheels rolling by reducing the braking force on individual wheels. This enables the driver to avoid the obstacle.
Electronic control unit continuously compares data from the speed sensors on individual
wheels. If abrupt deceleration of any wheel is detected, the hydraulics receive
a command to release the brake pressure, so the wheel resumes rolling.

The signal from wheel speed sensor changes again and the ECU recognizes
that the wheel is unblocked again. It is therefore able to transfer
the brake force again and the sensor gives command
to apply the brake pressure. Up to 16 such
cycles can occur each second.​

The ABS consists of three main parts:

Electronic control unit
Wheel speed sensors

Other safety features

The ŠKODA SPACEBACK is about safety for all passengers. This family compact was awarded five stars in the Euro NCAP crash test in 2012 for its exemplary safety features. Add to above mentioned safety systems, for the SPACEBACK are following features available as a standard or option:
  • ABS keeps the wheels from locking during emergency braking or when braking on slippery surfaces.
  • MKB activates the braking system after a collision to prevent further damage.
  • MSR counters the locking action of the driving wheels which can occur when the driver decelerates on a smooth surface. 
  • EDL prevents slipping of one of the drive wheels when driving on a road with decreased adhesion.
  • By increasing the braking pressure, the braking assistant helps drivers in situations in which emergency braking is necessary. This can lead to a significant reduction in required braking distance. 
  • The ASR ensures smooth starting and acceleration without the wheels spinning on slippery surfaces.
  • Tyre pressure control keeps the driver informed about tyre pressure at all times.
  • The optional hill-hold control assistant helps drivers start uphill safely. The system activates itself on inclines of five percent or more and ensures easy and safe uphill starting without the use of the hand brake. The system keeps the car from rolling backwards or stalling.
